The first thing that comes into our mind as introverts to boost energy is to have some alone time and recharge.
While recharging is an excellent method to have enough energy, it may not be sufficient to accomplish the tasks we want. We will drain very fast.
The best way to boost our energy by 1% each day so you can operate longer, is to train yourself to do something tiny bit uncomfortable every day.
You think 1% is not much, but adding that small percentage over one year is huge. 100 * (1 + 1%) ^ 365. That is 37.78x more energy and confidence in 365 days.
Commit to challenging yourself for 30 days
There are numerous benefits of doing something daily. It can be anything from physical health to general happiness. You must select one thing you do not like to do but do it daily for the next 30 days until it becomes a habit.
For something to be considered a habit, you must do it without having any choice in the matter and with the person remaining unaware that they are doing it.
A definition of a habit is an automatic behavior or mental act in which a specific action, item, or reaction becomes associated with an experience (e.g., going for a walk each morning).
One of the most critical things to regard when using this approach is how much time you take to do it again to ensure that the outcome is worth what you spent on it.
The most important thing to consider when challenging yourself is that you don’t need to be perfect at everything all the time. It’s OK if you are not great at something, but you must try your best and learn from your mistakes.
It’s important to be proud of yourself for what you’ve learned, but it’s also important not to focus too much on what you haven’t yet mastered. You want to challenge yourself, and by doing that, you’ll learn more about who you are as a person, which is the most critical thing in life.
Organize a small event
If you have never organized an event before, it is time to do so, as it will supercharge your confidence as an introvert and boost your energy levels. Believing in your ability is an incredible eye-opener.
Whenever you feel like you need a little boost, it is always good to have some friends around. Friends who are willing to listen and support you.
Creating an event that will help you get the energy back is essential. And what better way to do this than by having a small party with close people?
You might be wondering, “how can I organize such an event?” Well, this article will walk you through the steps of organizing a small party with a couple of very close people. The first thing you need to do is decide on a good time for the party. Since you have so few people, this will be easier than having more people.
You also have to decide when it should end, which can vary from as long as six hours to an hour, and then again, it could be anywhere between three and twelve hours.
The next step is letting people know that you are having a party. It would help if you had made plans in advance with your friends before this, so they can give a straight answer as to whether or not they will be able to attend.
If you haven’t told them yet, you must do so now. Once everyone knows about the party, decide what type of party you are having, and have your guests RSVP online, this is crucial in case you run out of food or drinks.
On the day of the party, make sure that you set up everything ahead of time and prepare yourself for people to realize that their plans will change.
Be prepared for any last-minute friends who want to come out. It’s a good idea to have someone other than the host with party planning experience to ensure that everything gets correctly done if you need help getting started.
Replace old habits with new ones
I would have listed a few things you should stop doing now, but it would be a cliche.
It is easy to say stop doing stuff that drains your energy, but stopping bad habits without offering alternatives can be challenging and unrealistic. So here are a few things to select and swap with some old habits.
The new habit is the old routine.David Goggins
This quote from David Goggins is critical in learning to substitute old habits with new ones. It will help if you start by recognizing the bad habit you want to replace and then find a substitute.
For example, if you want to stop drinking coffee, you can replace it with green tea or water. If you stop smoking cigarettes, you can replace them with vaping or chewing gum.
There are a lot of good habits to practice daily. These habits can help you to lead a healthy and productive life.
Some good habits you should practice daily are meditation, exercise, and eating healthy food.
Meditation is a good habit to practice daily. It can help you chill, relieve stress, and control your emotions. Meditation can be done as a personal practice or with others.
Exercise is a good habit to practice daily. Exercise can help you have a healthy body, improved mood, and mental health.
Preparing daily and eating healthy food is also a good habit as it helps you have better energy levels, more productivity, and improved brain function.
Habits are sustained behaviors that repeatedly happen for us to develop our skills.
What are the habits that you have developed so far? Are they healthy or toxic? And what are some practices you want to build in the future?
No matter what you choose to do in the next 30 days, do them without any expectation other than challenging yourself.
